Submitted by editor on Fri, 04/13/2018 - 11:13


For the past six years, Home Delivery World 2018 has been one of the leading retail logistics conferences in the United States. It brings together some of the world’s biggest retailers and logistics providers for two days of seminars, exhibits and networking opportunities. This year’s event is taking place next week on April 18-19 in Atlanta, GA and we’ll be there. We hope you’ll join us at this innovative industry conference!

Why We’re Attending Home Delivery World 2018

This year, we’ll be representing the SkyPostal brand at Home Delivery World 2018, and we’d love for you to stop by and say hello at Booth 104. Our CEO and Founder A.J. Hernandez will be in the house, along with more of the SkyPostal team.

According to A.J., “We’re attending Home Delivery World 2018, because we know that many online merchants are interested in expanding to regions outside of the U.S. and we can help them enter the emerging markets in Latin America.”

We’re especially excited to attend this year, because 2018 is shaping up to be a huge year for logistics innovation. According to Material Handling & Logistics News, current trends including Blockchain, “robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning algorithms” are changing the face of the supply chain industry. The attendees at Home Delivery World 2018 are all part of the logistics revolution that’s reshaping the industry, and presenters will be addressing many of these innovations at the event.

Molly Paprota, the Marketing Manager for Home Delivery World, explained to us why the event isn’t worth missing:

“Home Delivery World is the only place to learn about innovations through the entire supply chain -- from warehouse to doorstep. 110+ exhibitors will be showcasing how to optimize the delivery process whether it be final mile, parcel, white glove, 3PL, robotics, and more.

Attendees include retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Wayfair, Nordstrom, ASOS, Chico's, and Victoria's Secret; and grocers like FreshDirect, Peapod, Harris Teeter, Publix, ACME, Amway, Giant Eagle, Lowes Foods, and others.”

We’ll be there to share our final mile delivery expertise in Latin America. Earlier at this year’s Global E-Commerce Leaders Forum, A.J. spoke about our most recent innovations in Latin American final mile delivery solutions, including our efficient and secure TechSync and TechBase parcel delivery options. Our team is looking forward to continuing to showcase these developments for an emerging market in the e-commerce world.

Why Final Mile Delivery Is So Important

The final mile is the last delivery that brings the product directly to the consumer. According to MH&L News, customers expect perfectly delivered orders, but “the complexities of last-mile delivery make the odds against fulfilling a perfect order overwhelming.”

When you factor in the challenges of shipping to Latin America, such as difficult postal addresses and local delivery concerns, ensuring a perfect delivery is more critical than ever.
If you’re planning to attend Home World Delivery 2018, be sure to check out a few of the standout sessions on final mile delivery, including the Disruption Panel on “New technologies that are evolving the last mile” on Day One of the conference.

Don’t Miss Home Delivery World 2018!

But the focus will be on much more than the final mile. We’re intrigued by the innovative ways Blockchain and AI are being used to provide increased security and efficiency to the logistics industry.

Don’t just take our word for it, Home World Delivery offers FREE individual exhibition passes! So if you’re in retail or e-commerce logistics, or you’re an innovation solution provider in the Atlanta area, why not drop in and say hello to our team at Booth 104? We’d love to share more with you about how partnering with SkyPostal can help you expand your reach into Latin America.
